‘As you see, we take every game seriously. We take every competition seriously. It’s great to play a final. If you play, you want to win.’
United enjoyed the perfect build-up when they beat Barcelona 2-1 at Old Trafford on Thursday night to complete a 4-3 aggregate win and advance to the last 16 of the Europa League.
‘It was a good feeling, that unified the feeling, really together,’ added Ten Hag. ‘It was good against a great opponent, one of the best teams in Europe, Barcelona.
‘They have a typical way of playing, so if you can beat them, Sunday is a great challenge. It’s also great to play them (Newcastle) and find a different style, different system. Every time you want to beat them, it’s a good plan to beat opponents.’
